    What I really like is the hypocrisy of those who support the national “FairTax” yet oppose states imposing sales tax on online purchases.

    Hey Steve, I hate to admit it, but I don’t know what the “FairTax” is.

    Since when did a bureaucrat ever pass up a chance to tax something? If there was a way to measure it, the state and federal governments would tax the air we breathe.

    Never mind the commerce clause; how about “no interstate tariffs shall be imposed”?
